Zolotow's text was first published in 1980, but it still resonates with today’s parents and children, particularly as imagined by Voake.

Synopsis

When a little girl and her mother take a lovely autumn walk together, Mom’s small observations—and gentle humor—convey a big, special sentiment.

It’s a golden, windy autumn day, and a mother a daughter set out walking among the swirling leaves. As they wend their way, they share little adventures—spying a kitten, seeing the trees zigzag with streaks of color, catching some floating milkweed, watching the setting sun color the clouds. Throughout their walk, the girl keeps urging her mother to “say it” with more and more persistence. What could “it” be? From a sterling picture-book team comes a quiet story that shows the many ways love is expressed in the small moments shared between parent and child.
